Anecdotes

By Ashraf Al Shafaki

Description

Anecdotes are personal experiences the trainer has gone through himself or herself.

Benefits

  • Drives complex concepts easily to the mind. 
  • A powerful tool for convincing others with the validity of a point (since a past event experienced by the speaker/trainer himself or herself is a concrete fact).
  • Memorable.
  • Establishes empathy. 
  • Helps build a strong bond between trainer and trainees.

Principle

The human mind is designed to accept and digest stories effectively. Anecdotes are a special kind of stories that include a deeper sense of truth and are more heightened emotional effect.
